WARNER BROS.
Kate Hudson in Fool's Gold

'Fool's Gold'

WHAT: Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson team up for another romance, this one a lame tale that sends them on a treasure hunt.

EXTRAS: Fittingly for this thin comedy, the DVD and Blu-ray discs come with skimpy extras, including a gag reel and a feature on the two stars discussing their on-screen chemistry, which they describe as an ability to "fight and flirt well."

COST: DVD, $28.98; Blu-ray, $35.99. (Warner Bros.)

'Under the Same Moon'

WHAT: Few dramas centered on illegal immigration come off as inspirational, but this one about a boy trying to reunite with his mom on the other side of the border proves to be a feel-good story. The film follows a 9-year-old (Adrian Alonso) as he sets out from Mexico to find his mother (Kate del Castillo), who has left him with his grandmother and crossed over to the United States to build a better life for them.

EXTRAS: A making-of featurette and a segment on the colorful murals created for the film.

COST: DVD, $29.98. (20th Century Fox)

'Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins'

WHAT: Martin Lawrence stars in a family reunion comedy that seems to have misplaced the comedy part. Loaded with gross gags, bad dialogue and unfunny quarrels, the movie features Mr. Lawrence as a successful author and TV personality who comes home to Georgia for the 50th anniversary bash for his parents (James Earl Jones and Margaret Avery, whose talents are utterly wasted) and ends up back in an old rivalry with his brazen cousin (Cedric the Entertainer).

EXTRAS: Forty-five minutes of extra footage, including an alternate opening. Writer-director Malcolm D. Lee provides commentary.

COST: DVD, $29.98. (Universal)

'Burn Notice: Season One'

WHAT: Blackballed from the intelligence game and his cover blown, a spy (Jeffrey Donovan) takes a gig as a private eye while trying to track down who burned him in the espionage community. A four-disc set has the first 11 episodes, plus commentary with cast and crew.

COST: DVD set, $49.98. (20th Century Fox)
